Monthly pass education subscription

If you subscribe to a Monthly pass education subscription, you can reach your training place and vocational school twelve months long by bus, tram or train. In doing so you save a lot of money: the Monthly pass education subscription is significantly less expensive than twelve regular Monthly passes education. Apprentices up to and including 22 years of age can also use the Youth Pass. It costs only 15 euros per month and is valid in all three tariff zones (A, B and C) of the GVH. It can therefore be an inexpensive alternative to a subscription.

You can extent the Monthly pass education subscription

  • If you want to travel within more zones your pass actually allows to, you merely need a Single- or a 6 trip Single ticket for one zone (A, B or C). Here it is not important how many zones you cross. Example: your Monthly pass education subscription is valid for zone C but you want to get to the main station Hanover in zone A. Although you cross zone B and A, an extension with a Single- or a 6 trip Single ticket for one zone (A, B or C) is enough.
  • If you make several journeys in other zones on one day, you can in this case buy a Day ticket or 6 trip Day ticket for one zone (A, B or C).
  • For short journeys in excess of the scope of validity of your Monthly pass education subscription (three stations by tram, five stations by bus) all you need is an additional Short trip ticket

Subscription start pass

If you apply for a new subscription, it takes a few days until your request is processed and you get the desired pass. The Subscription start pass allows subscribers to bridge the time from application to the start of the subscription period: it is currently issued in the GVH Customer Centre. The Subscription start pass is valid from midnight of the first day of validity until 05:00 a.m. of the last day of validity. The price depends on how many days must be bridged until the subscription starts. For each day only 1/30 of the future monthly subscription price will be charged.
